I have some windows admin work to do as well. However I prefer that ansible doesn't require daemons on every host, so I was a bit torn on which to use.
Searched around a bit and found pave. It has the things I need (admittedly straightforward) and is about as simple as it gets. Would be great if it could get some love, as I appreciate the no-nonsense design. https://bitbucket.org/mixmastamyk/pave
It's not my job to help you reason with logic. If you can't appreciate that circular reasoning is a distraction, then what is my explaining going to do other than waste my time? I'll just have repeat myself as you spout more and more meme-like troupes and purposeful misunderstandings. I'm not hear to proselytize or market. I'm hear to figure out the truth for myself, if others happen to be convinced in the process, that's just a happy side-effect.
After seeing Los Angeles and the map of the west in general, I believe the Latinos are significantly under-counted.
I had anticipated this to some extent in daily life but it was driven home a few years ago. I lived in a very "latino" neighborhood, unusual to see anyone else...
When election time came around, I got in line of perhaps 50-100 people at a very busy polling place. Bored, I looked down the line at each person. Gone were the folks I was used to seeing every day, in fact I was hard-pressed to find any. I counted one or two latinos in the whole line, and they were not from the migrant-worker class... i.e. poorer Mexican or Central American Indians.
It is probable a larger percentage of these folks will submit to the Census bureau than registering to vote, but how much? As a whole they are not well integrated.

The higher res you go, the less differences there'll be between the two rendering methods. Fitting to the pixel-grid doesn't alter very much if the pixel grid is small enough.
Consider: Rendering a small font size at high-res is equivalent to rendering a larger font size at lower-res. If you look at the larger fonts on TFA's screenshot, e.g. "Node JS Design Patterns 101", there's proportionally much less difference (between Ubuntu and OSX) than at small sizes.
I know, and I'm using it for this, but the previous dialog was just way better and user-friendly. It had large previews and descriptions while the new tweak tool only has some uncommented options in a drop-down menu.
You can still edit ~/.fonts.conf by hand. If you need an intermediate level, then you're advanced enough to use vim and write the config yourself. The GUI shouldn't have to pander to fickle powerusers like you, it's supposed to make the PC EASY.
Yes, it is a well-known issue with Linux and Windows :-)
Seriously, you have to pick one: you either deform letter shapes so that they fit the grid better, with the disadvantage that your line breaks change and/or your letter and/or word spacing look awful, or you ignore the grid until the last moment, compute what percentage of each pixel is covered by each 'infinite resolution' graphene, and color them gray accordingly, with the disadvantage that text looks a bit more blurry.
(technically, there is a third way: layout each character of each font at some set of fixed point sizes by hand, so that it fits the grid perfectly. The original Mac used that method; it became infeasible when the LaserWriter shipped)
Also, as I alluded to in my previous comment, as resolutions increase in the future, the Mac OS approach is more correct in the long run.
Though, it has come with the cost of fuzzy fonts and squinting for the last decade.
Note that the installation instructions on that site are completely out of date. You don't need a C compiler anymore, just clone the repo and enable the extension, as described in the README: https://bitbucket.org/durin42/hg-git
I like the new look in general, but one drawback is pretty clear. The readme is now narrow and can't expand. I like narrow columns in general, but now all of my <pre> text is much too wide and showing scrollbars. Lots of work ahead. :(
I also see there is no whitespace around my h3s and not much around h1s, and h2s. Looks quite cramped. Still nicer on the whole. I guess I can try to hack in some line breaks manually.
